SB 11.15.30
mad-vibhutir abhidhyayan
 sa bhaved aparajitah

My devotee becomes unconquerable by meditating on My opulent incarnations, which are decorated with Srivatsa and various weapons and are endowed with imperial paraphernalia such as flags, ornamental umbrellas and fans.

The imperial paraphernalia of the Lord’s opulent incarnations indicates His omnipotency, and the devotees become unconquerable by meditating on the Lord’s powerful, royally equipped incarnations. As stated by Bilvamangala Thakura in Krsna-karnamrta, verse 107:

bhaktis tvayi sthiratara bhagavan yadi syad
 daivena nah phalati divya-kisora-murtih
muktih svayam mukulita├▒jalih sevate ’sman
 dharmartha-kama-gatayah samaya-pratiksah

“My dear Lord, if we develop unflinching devotional service unto You, then automatically Your transcendental, youthful form is revealed to us. Thus liberation herself waits with folded hands to serve us, and the ultimate goals of religiosity, economic development and sense gratification patiently wait to render service to us.”
